Cleopatra Slots

CleopatraThe title of this slot, Cleopatra, will tell you immediately what it is about. The Egyptian theme is everywhere these days, but that doesn’t mean that there are a lot of great looking slots out there on this topic. On the contrary, quite a few of them are old or the developers simply went through the motions with them, and I’m afraid this former is the case in Cleopatra as well. The design seems antiquated, though at least they’ve made the effort to modify each playing card, to feel right at home in the Egyptian setting. Cleopatra is the main focus of these Egyptian slots, and this title didn’t try to be any different.

In Cleopatra, the players will find that bets are placed on 20 bet lines, that the slot has 5 reels and that it’s a feature rich environment, where you get scatter symbols, wild symbols, free spins and multipliers. Its best payouts will go up to $50,000.

Features of Cleopatra

Though the graphics will probably prove disappointing, the features are another matter. You’re going to find in Cleopatra a range of decent features, all of them popular and available in many slot machines. Among them, the wilds and scatters are always popular, with free spins and multipliers triggered by them and also used in lots of slot machines.

In most games where it is used, the wild feature tends to be the most important one of all. The reason isn’t just its ability to substitute for other symbols, though it does come in handy quite often when it doesn’t have big limitations. It’s the top jackpot in most cases that gives it such a big importance, as the wild symbol is usually chosen to give away the biggest prize the slot has to offer. This is the case here as well, as the 10,000 coins of the jackpot are given to the player that manages to land five wild symbols on the same payline. Another advantage of the wild is the multiplier that it applies to the winning combinations formed with its assistance, which guarantees you double the usual payout when that happens.

The scattered Sphinx is also important to the slot, and how could it not be since it gives away big prizes and multiple free spins. The scattered position of the symbols is an advantage that it has over the others, as is the cash prize it can offer, which uses the total bet as its basis, not the line bet. The presence of two to five scattered Sphinxes will get you 2x to 100x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

Sphinx symbols, when appearing a minimum of three times, are responsible both for a cash prize, as I’ve mentioned above, and for the Cleopatra Bonus feature, where you have 15 free spins you can go through. All payouts are tripled during these free spins, with the exception of the payout offered for the top jackpot.


Betting options and jackpots

Each player is required to cover all the paylines of the slot when placing a bet, plus the coins are fixed in value at $1, so the minimum bet is worth $20 and out of the reach of a lot of players. The maximum bet value is $100, with 5 coins used per line, once again at $1 each one.

Those willing to place larger bets get the better rewards, with 10,000x being the payout that takes the line wager into consideration. It means a cash value of up to $50,000, a more than decent prize for this game.

Design and symbols

The game’s theme doesn’t give the slot’s design a lot of help, as it’s way too common and there are a lot of slots out there that look stunning and which can be compared with this one. The thing that sets it back would be the dated design, though when taken individually the symbols have a lot of small details in them, the playing cards are decorated and have various gems encrusted, and it shows that the designers did try to make something out of it.


Symbols: Cleopatra Logo (wild, 10,000x), Sphinx (scatter), Scarab (750x), Flower (750x), Gold Bar (400x), Tools (250x), Eye of Ra (250x), Ace (125x), King (100x), Queen (100x), Jack (100x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not the best looking, the more entertaining or the more profitable Egyptian themed slot out there, and it’s not those things even among the slots with this theme that IGT has. I recommend you look at one of the other Cleopatra titles, especially the Mega Jackpot one.

Cleopatra can be found at any IGT casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
